Coordinating with the Community

Acting in partnership with the community to promote a responsive and flexible approach to quality of life issues is the foundation of Hampton's community oriented policing endeavors. Our effective coordination and cooperation with other city agencies and community organizations have generated a variety of problem solving partnerships. These coalitions have been successful in developing comprehensive solutions to community problems, forging new strengths in combating crime and helping to improve our community. The Hampton Police Division looks to bring the community together to prevent crime and solve neighborhood problems, making Hampton the most livable city in Virginia.


One of the Hampton Police Division's main goals is to helping to make Hampton the most livable city in Virginia. Our residents and community are very important to us.

The Hampton Police Division recognizes the importance of involving the community to help combat crime and increase the quality of police service. We have several programs in action that help protect the community in which we live, sharpen crime awareness, and encourage citizens to work with the police towards reducing crime. Please take some time to investigate those programs.
